In Southeast, the pattern of ill health is dominated by infectious diseases, nutritional disorders, maternal and prenatal diseases. Population groups that exhibit the highest levels of mortality, morbidity & malnutrition are women & children. There is lack of basic health infrastructure and services and low levels of health awareness among the population which contribute to high levels health related problems that in recent years have been exacerbated by political instability and armed conflicts


The aim is to establish well equipped and staffed public birthing centers and clinics in order to develop a sustainable primary healthcare delivery system at grass-roots level, which falls within the new Government policy, paired with income generation and capacity building measures. The main focus will be on maternal -and child healthcare to provide accessible, efficient and improved health services, coupled with health education related to general health and family planning.

Long-Term Impact

More than 20,000 people will have access to improved healthcare services that are in harmony with the Government's Health Strategic Plan and Safe Motherhood & New-Born Health Plan with the UN (SDGs) by 2030, which include key elements of safe motherhood and family planning, health education, child health, control of communicable diseases and improved out-patient care. This will reduce maternal and child mortality rates and raises general awareness of diseases, leading to healthier lifestyle.
